Why water paintings and not just water photography?
For me an art making practice is just that --an experimental endeavor. Some paint from a photographic resource --I take photographs based on my paintings. I'd like to think that the paintings spring -of whole cloth- from the deeper recesses of my mind but of course thats a foolish (romantic) idea. I live in an age where the increase in visual bombardment of all kinds of images (dominated by photography) increase exponentially. I think of Warhol's triple-Elvis as my first awareness of the overlapping repetitive dissemination of a visually mediated reality. An avalanche of imprints --can I try and make just one?
